I'm getting ready to switch our workgroup setting to a domin setting. I have created a new profile on the C:/ drive and copied over the info to the new domain user. It worked great to begin with. But when I came back over the weekend and tried to log into the domain I got this message. "Windows can't load the local stored profile". It then said that it would use a temperary user account but would'nt save user settings. I tried to delete the new user information and recopy it but no matter if I was loged in as local administrator or the local user it keep telling me it could'nt copy over the ntuser files becuse they where in use. I did'nt get that message the first time I copied over.

What do I do!

It might be wise if you could review the following link: (Guide To Windows NT 4.0 Profiles and Policies) http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;185587

Secondly you might want to give this a try: (How to copy data from a corrupted user profile to a new profile) http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=811151
